Blue Ribbon Commissions

*Corporate governance review panels established by the *National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD). The NACD Web site describes the reports of its Blue Ribbon Committees as "thought-leadership publications compiled by a commission of seasoned *directors and governance experts." In recent years areas investigated by commissions include *audit committees and *executive remuneration. In 2000, for example, the NACD published its Report of the NACD Blue Ribbon Commission on Audit Committees, which reviewed ways in which audit committees can function effectively, and the types of director that should be considered for audit committee service.
